MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is insisting she is the party's standard-bearer in next year's election, even as Vice President Joe Biden considers challenging her and Sen. Bernie Sanders draws big crowds.

Pointing to big losses in the 2010 mid-term elections, Clinton says the party can't allow that to happen again and must rebuild "from the ground up."

Clinton says GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is now the de facto leader of the Republican party. She says "the party of Lincoln has become the party of Trump."

She says other candidates "may be fighting for a particular ideology, but I'm fighting for you and your families."

Clinton is one of four Democratic contenders that addressws a Democratic National Committee meeting in Minneapolis.
